    Mr Jorkins — The rarely seen partner of Mr David Copperfield book. The story follows the life of David Copperfield from childhood to maturity. Dickens's youthful passion for Maria Beadnell resurfaces with tenderness, in the form of David's impractical marriage with Dora Spenlow.

    During that time he publishes David Copperfield book story about his own life with the help of old school-friend Traddles, and realizes that he loves Agnes, praying she loves him too. This was thought to be an unlucky omen by some women of the neighborhood and by the nurse who attended his birth. Robert Albo to add to the museum.
